Our solicitors can help you make it right
With over 25 years’ experience, we’ve helped thousands of people injured in accidents that weren’t their fault.
During that time, we’ve seen how much of a difference compensation can make to people’s lives.
Not only can compensation cover the pain and suffering you’ve had to go through, but it can also pay for the expenses of your injury such as time off work and medical treatment. It can help you get the support you need during your recovery, and into the future.
Get in touch with our specialist advisors on 0800 376 0150 – we offer free, impartial advice and there’s never any pressure to make a claim.
During your call with us, we’ll answer all your questions and help you understand whether you could make a claim. And we’ll take the stress out of finding the right solicitor for your case too.

How we choose our solicitors to handle your claims
No Win No Fee solicitors - FAQ
What happens if my No Win No Fee claim is successful?
In the vast majority of cases, a successful claim is one where your solicitor negotiates an acceptable settlement for you with the other side’s insurance company. In the small number of successful cases that are decided in Court, a Judge will decide your damages award. Once the gross amount of damages is paid, your solicitor will deduct only the fees they agreed with you when they took on your case. They then transfer the net payment to your bank account. If your claim is unsuccessful, you owe nothing.
What happens if my claim is unsuccessful or if you think I don’t have grounds for a claim?
If your claim is unsuccessful, then you pay nothing: it’s as simple as that. No Win No Fee means there are no financial risks and no financial surprises when you make a compensation claim. We’re here to give you the advice you need to make an informed decision about your claim. If we don’t think you have reasonable grounds for a claim, either we (or the solicitor we appoint to discuss your case) will let you know there and then - and give you clear reasons why. There are no up-front costs involved and if you’re within the time limits for making a claim, you’re free to seek a second opinion elsewhere.
What’s the percentage fee that a No Win No Fee solicitor takes in a successful claim?
Up until 2013, the claimant kept 100% of any damages award and solicitors’ costs were paid by the other side’s insurers. This was deliberately changed in the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) Act 2012 to make the cost burden more proportionate for the defending side. Today, the law says that a No Win No Fee solicitor can deduct a 'success' fee for their services from the gross amount you’re awarded in a successful claim: this is normally around 25%. There are no up-front costs. We guarantee that all of our panel solicitors will never ask you for any up-front charges to manage your case. Our approved solicitors will always detail the fees as part of the agreement between you before taking on your case. This means there are never any financial surprises. If your claim is unsuccessful, you owe nothing.
